Antarctica Things to Do: 527 reviews and 1,073 photos
As I mentioned in another tip, the volcano of Deception Island had last erupted in 1969. Here you see the force of the lava destroying the very foundations of these whaling faciltiies-- to the point where they're all standing tilted now and wheels are submerged in the solidified lava!
I found walking on the black, solidified lava to be an interesting experience because it was so soft and bouncy-- almost as if one was jumping on a massive bouncy castle!
Although you are not allowed to enter the buildings, the one in the picture here is the exception. You can go in and experience the fantastic acoustics by shouting/singing. Be amazed at how your voice resonates!
